Darkside of Nowhere

Captain's Log, Stardate 100618 "We're dead in the water. That," I said, pointing to the umbilical linked to our dock, "is the only thing keeping us alive." The situation since Farpoint Bronson had become dire. Our dilthium crystals drained, our only source of power was being provided by an automated way station situated light years … Continue reading Darkside of Nowhere

Shades of Lazarus

Captain's Log, Stardate 092918 Having barely escaped our encounter at Farpoint Bronson, we set a course for Federation space. As we departed, our antimatter clones watched with interest, their minds calculating, conspiring, but what? Our impulse engines humming just outside the far edges of known space, I called for the crew to prepare for warp. … Continue reading Shades of Lazarus

Some Demented Guy Keeps Posting My Life Story

Hey. Spencer here. I've been online ever since I could remember. Hell, Mom posted sonogram photos on Facebook before Dad made her take them down. Down from her fake account about our fake life. Like he was worried somebody would notice a resemblance between fetus me and his masked, muscled self. Then I was born. … Continue reading Some Demented Guy Keeps Posting My Life Story

Encounter at Far Point Bronson

Captain's Log, Stardate 091518 We've arrived at the edges of Federation space, transiting through the Dakotas into Northern Minnesota. It is a strange sight to watch the last of the stars slip off the bow and then stare into a featureless void. Gravitational currents of unknown origin pull on Discovery's hull as we cross the … Continue reading Encounter at Far Point Bronson

The Devils of Blue Earth

Captain's Log, Stardate 090818 Late last week we entered orbit around a lush, wet world known to the native populations as Blue Earth. Disappointingly, the soil is of the brown variety and not blue as advertised, but it is still alien nonetheless compared to the typical red of our home world. The flora here is … Continue reading The Devils of Blue Earth

Quick Writing Update – Crimson Son Series

It took an epic deluge (Minnesota is more rainy and humid than I'd imagined), the sequestering of my son in his ivory tower, and sending my wife to the other side of the country to get the chance to do the one thing I've been meaning to do for weeks - sit down and write. … Continue reading Quick Writing Update – Crimson Son Series
